"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

Project nICE is a campaign created by Cutting Edge Figure Skating Club to Instill, Create and Encourage kindness in our skaters.

 

U.S. Figure Skating and the Cutting Edge Figure Skating Club strive to provide a safe environment for its members, one that is free of abuse and harassment. The association will not tolerate or condone any form of harassment or abuse of any of its members including athletes, coaches, officials, directors, employees, parents, volunteers or any other persons while they are participating in or preparing for a figure skating activity or event conducted under the auspices of U.S. Figure Skating. All forms of abuse and harassment are unacceptable and in direct conflict with U.S. Figure Skating rules.       

 

Our director will monitor the SafeSport policies and procedures of the club; verifying that all of the coaches who are engaged in any type of coaching activity with any club skater are in compliance with the USFS coaching membership rules regarding background checks and continuing education requirements; and serve as the initial contact in the club for persons to report suspected abuse, misconduct or other violations, and when necessary, report such info to USFS
